Subject: interesting set of short stories
Very nicely read by icyjumbo (1964-2010); see his Librivox page for more:

An enjoyable set of mini adventures that also convey some history.

Personally I would skip the poems that introduce each chapter, but that probably says more about me than about the book...

Also: much to my disappointment, Kipling's "sequel" (Rewards and Fairies) didn't measure up at all.

Subject: Fanciful yet factual
With all the renewed interest in fantasy over the past decade, the 102 year old historical fantasy, Puck of Pook's Hill, deserves consideration. Two early 20th century children, living in Pevensey, England, have a chance encounter with the legendary Puck, who undertakes to bring them a series of first hand accounts of the history of their region. Puck introduces them to eye witnesses to such events as the Norman Conquest, the waning of the Roman occupation, and the dissolution of the monasteries. As the historic individuals relate their tales, they are suitable impressed with the children's abilities to resolve some of the mysteries that were not understood in their times. The selections of Kipling's poetry that accompany each chapter are related thematically, and pleasingly rhythmic. Recommended for grade level 4 and up through adults.
